Extrapolate the number of autocars on the road vs crashes to the number of driven cars vs crashes.

Extrapolate the number of autocars on the road vs crashes to the number of driven cars vs crashes.
There should be (and probably there are) some sort of statistics tracked by the NHTSA that can be used to compare accidents per vehicle miles driven of human driven and autonomous cars. This article states that the crash rate for normally driven cars is 4.2 per million miles, while Google's autonomous fleet has had 3.2 per million miles. But that's a study commissioned by Google.

And how many collisions happened with cars driven by people??????????????????????
.

It's just news. Pretty soon Autonomous Car collisions won't be news. This involves the Waymo Pacifica, otherwise it's merely the filler all other sites spew. That's it.

Didn’t they announce that it was in manual mode right before the collision?

In this instance the Waymo vehicle was run into. Autonomous or not would have resulted in the same outcome. I don't think a human driver could have predicted nor reacted to the event any different.
That puts a different spin on that crash right there. ^^^
